to japan, the nuclear facility has been leaking tons of radioactive water, plutonium has been found in the soil, contamination continued to spread in the ocean but tonight in our state we're focused on the first sign of radioactivity here. state leaders said there were small trace amounts but doesn't pose a health risk to us. jeff hager sought out an answer to that question today. jeff? >> reporter: high atop baltimore's federal hill, 6,800 miles from japan radioactive material may already be present. >> i would be worried in california, not too worried here. >> after three mile island at age 7, that was scarier. >> reporter: maryland hill's secretary dr. joshua sharpteen said marylanders had little to worry about even though radioactivity from tokyo's nuclear facilities is already here. >> we did detect very small amounts of radioactive materials in the air. very, very small amounts. in the rainwater. which is not unexpected. other states have seen it as well. >> reporter: the state has turned up no further evidence of the fallout. any radioactivity found here came through the atmo
lemon. there's a lot of news in libya but first the latest from japan. another earthquake has struck, this one a magnitude 6.5 very near the epicenter of the march 11th quake that triggered the tsunami. this latest jolt is not welcome news for the crippled power plant in fukushima. radiation levels at the plant have been off the chart at times. fortunately some of the most alarming readings turned out to be false. four of the six nuclear reactors are in bad shape and it's been touch and go for the last two weeks as workers try to contain the damage. let's go to paula hancocks in tokyo. paula is there and will join us in just a little bit to update us on the situation. let's move on now and talk about that astonishing new video of the march 11th quake and tsunami in japan as it unfolds. we want to take a look.

, beginning at 7:30. >>> and now to the disaster in japan, where contamination levels at a damaged nuclear power plant have now reached new highs. the amount of radiation in the water that's been flooding the fukushima plant spiked today to levels 100,000 times higher than normal. higher levels of radiation were also found in the soil and the sea water along the japanese coast. the contamination is believed to be the result of a partial meltdown in the core of the complex following the march 11th earthquake and tsunami. another strong 6.5 aftershock rattled that country this morning, adding to the sense of unease for people there. and some students from fukushima are here in our area, visiting an elementary school in did yourwood, maryland. jane watrel is in our newsroom with that story. jane? >> wendy, the family has relatives in montgomery county, and since schools in their hometown are being used as disaster centers, they came to the area ahead of spring break, wanting to share their story with localel school children. >> my name is damaki. i'm 12 years old. >> reporter: a lesson in the
